Director of Human Resources
Come join our family-owned, made-in-the-USA, manufacturing operation and help us grow!
Let us warm you up! From state-of-the art fireplaces to a full line of heaters and hearths, log sets, fireplace inserts and cast-iron stoves, Empire Comfort Systems (“ECS”) boasts an 85-year history of made-in-the-USA manufacturing excellence! Based in Belleville, Illinois, ECS has grown dramatically from its start as a small sheet metal shop. ECS was the first to market vent-free heaters equipped with an oxygen depletion sensor (now standard on all vent-free products in the USA). Success continued in the 1980s as ECS became the first to market a gas-fired heater, achieving 80-percent efficiency, and, again, in 2006, with its first vented-gas fireplace, achieving 90-percent efficiency.
Now under experienced 4th generation family-owned leadership, ECS is growing market share by expanding its national market presence, building on its reputation for being “easy to do business with,” innovating new products, and embracing the “Empire Business System,” our customized approach to continuous improvement. ECS is focused on building a high-feedback culture, guided by core values, the most important of which is “leading with love.” For ECS, this means we will lead in ways that engage our employees and create a passion for our mission in a fun and family-oriented environment.

Due to Empire’s recent and anticipated growth, we are now seeking a firm, yet, engaging and innovative Director of Human Resources to serve as a strategic yet down-to-earth partner to the ECS leadership team. This hands-on, walk-the-plant-floor position will provide leadership for all HR initiatives and will be called upon to create talent management systems that build upon existing HR practices and enable the organization to achieve its growth objectives.
